The model number on Kenmore or Sears products consist of 11 digits usually, the first 3 digits tell us who made it for them and the remainder is the model number, please send the model number in the following format: 123.45678901, this will allow Just Answer to display the number and not think it is a phone number and X it out like this XXXXXXXXXX,

What is the model number of the unit, this should be found inside the door area of the unit.

Item 11 and 14 in the diagram pop off, once they are removed you will see a Phillips head screw on each side, remove these 2 screws and the entire console will pop up for you.

If you asking on how to remove 11 and 14, i grab them from the top and pull towards me to pop them off to access the 2 screws under it... there are 3 different styles of control panels, one uses screw on the rear, another uses a putty knife and yours is popping off the end caps.
